Well just got back from Lowe's. Here is a basic layout of my overflow minus the 1.5" braided nylon hose which I'm holding off on the hose for the overflow and return until I have my sump situation figured out to get more exact measurements. I also grabbed 2 4x2 sheets of eggcrate and some misc. Smalls.

My first thought was AppalachianCorals.com but meh.
Looking forward to seeing your corals for sale come to fruition. I am planning in turning my spare bedroom into a frag tank room. Just got the go ahead from the mrs. Lol. Was thinking of the name "Reefers' Delight" but then thought I might be attracting a different consumer demographic.

Keep the shades open and the neighbors wouldn't know the difference between what you are growing, so the name could work!

So here's how I will be doing the rack system. I have 8- 15x15 squares and I will be making an assortment of sizes of legs out of it as well ranging from one square up to probably 6-7 square tall legs that way I can adjust for height of corals and lighting needs fairly easily. I have 3 square legs on one rack now and a BUNCH more to make haha.

Do the label on the rubber fittings with the hose clamps say "for drainage use only"?

I would swap out for PVC unions.

I've actually decided to just ditch em and hard plumb into the bulkhead. I'll update tomorrow when I get back from the store and finish up all the plumbing. The rubber couplings should be fine though cause I've had one on my current setup for over a year and it had it on it before that for a couple years with no issue along with some other people I know of using them.

And to clarify, if you guys haven't noticed I'm just plumbing one system for now. Once this one is up and running I will begin working on the second one since I won't need both to begin with so itll save some running cost and spread out the purchases a bit more.
